Judgement Day for Davis

Gov. Gray Davis, a moderate-turned-flaming-liberal and quite possibly the worst governor in America's history, is facing a nightmare-scenario October 7 recall election. Unfortunately (as always), the California Republicans will probably bungle it. The state GOP has failed to rally around a single Republican candidate, which means that Schwarzenegger, Darrell Issa (the car-alarm tycoon whose money got the recall moving) and Bill Simon, the lousy 2002 candidate, will all probably run. Davis will get about 35-40 percent of the vote no matter what, which could easily win him the election if the Republicans split badly enough. (Pretty much very candidate who wants to will go on the ballot, which will probably result in at least 3 Republicans running against Davis.)
